Without you I have nothing to cling to My heart is a shattered pane of glass My hands are cut from trying to pick up the pieces And you just sit there and laugh at the blood dripping from my hands

You're crying again... tears comin' down your face You're sobbing, almost in tears, all in tears, depressing, or anger hitting your fists against the wall tellin' yourself it won't happen again,
Say the words you know will burn a fire within me Say the ones that you think will push me Say them. Please say them. Becuase I promise then, I won't feel bad walking away.
What's the point of a thought if all you do is yell? I can't even hear myself think I don't like the song the cupboards make Can you stop making life sound like hell?
Your anger is outrageous but no longer contagious Im laughing as you hiss and spit sitting there talkin shit Go ahead im empty dead I gave up on emotion and accepted the empty.

Fearless is the absence of the fear Fearing less is a message held dear Bravery or neccessity, the motive unclear Tongueless or eyeless, his silence impure A road less tread, a story unread

Frustration and anger spew out, an intense
Look at all of us, standing in a line, aren't we so wise? Pushing dimes and nickles and crying tears out of our eyes We have no choice. We just can't fly when you bastards keep pulling out every feather
It's easier to be alone where you know no one can touch you. It's easier to be alone because you don't have to care for anyone. It's easier to be alone because you know you can't hurt anyone.
All was in vain We knew it Our hearts have fractured But only I am pierced by the shards Now words are exchanged You didn’t know how you spoke Through the emptiness of your eyes
Breath and think. Breath and don't think. Release your feelings in words that are not spoken. Do not be tempted to anger as who you are. You are better than the hateful thoughts that plague your mind.
The boy stalked across the empty stage.

I hate these ballet shoes Everyday marks another bruise And as I dance with the pain, my brain is in flames, going insane Working double time over what should be considered a war-crime
i speak for those who have lost their courage to speak for those whos words run to the tip of their tounges just to retreat back to the back of the throats back to where they came from
Behind the curtain What I keep hidden From your eyes and mind Is strictly forbidden Under the mask What a clever disguise

If there is one thing I hate
I am in a tough state right now
He sits there, chained, angry, ready to be released
You were my partner…. you were my brother…You understood this side of me the way no one else could.We’d vent to each other, we struggled together every single day just to be seen as normal…
My fingers won’t move. They are stiff with frost, Tips turning blue and then deathly purple. Threatening to rip them from My flesh they were sown into by my creator. Icicles hang from my eyelashes,
I am cold
Split tongues slithering air, Puffing plumes of vapid vapor,
Just stand there
I remember,the bitter taste,as it poured down my throat.
You break my heartJust a little each day
I’d change the homophobia, the fear and the hate, The suppression of expression we face each day, The way they look at us as though we’re not quite right,
Feel the vibe flowing through my veins Opening a never-ending wealth of spiritual domain So mentally taxing I can't help but wonder what will remain
I was thinking of you today You taught me so much in so many ways Like how to give up and just say goodbye And then to turn "love" into "wanting-to-die" You and my mom, you had it planned out so well
Anger is… Danger It’s a cruel thing that hurts Rather than help It causes wars It causes sores It causes people to act out violently When they should be acting passively Curse words, punches,
I try, I fail, I am me
Excuses- that’s all you say you hear excuses for not following rules, I’m a person not a tool excuses for my own belief, you don’t like when I speak what I think
AND ALL I WANT TO KNOW IS ARE YOU OKAY OR DO YOU MERELY SAY YOU ARE TO AVOID WEIRD GLANCES AND LONG AWKWARD TALKS ABOUT FEELINGS THAT DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING EXCEPT ENSURE THAT YOU WILL NEVER TALK TO ANYONE AGAIN ARE YOU OKAY OR DO Y

Death and Life Happiness and Saddness
As I have gotten older, school has become less and less
I have failed. I was not strong enough. I was supposed to break the chains, Eradicate my burden. I merely shifted the weight to make it easy to carry. The chains still wound fast around my heart.
Ask for the truth, I'll give you a lie You'll never know that I want to cry. The words you said, they hurt like hell. You victimize yourself, but know that you're well. You've cut me deeply, much deeper than deep
Anger corses through my veins,uncontrolable rage shook within me,I was un happy. My blood boiling cold,My eyes uncaring,words like a knife,cutting all near me.

Your anger pulses through the air. I try to avoid your traps, but I'm shaking with fear. You wait, watching my every move, ready to pounce.
The face of anger... What a thing to think. How can one describe such a terrible thing? A face of rage by us can't be told, As we are chained to words of old. And even in new, less meaning is found

Stuff I Can't Say To My Teacher What many things they are ,
My bag is a boulder Ready to break my back. What's a social life you ask? I have long since forgotten now that teachers dictate mine. "School is more important." is what they drill into your mind.
I am not a number. I am not a rank out of my class, which is a bummer. I am not a number on a four-point scale. I am not just a student, and I like to rebel. I am a person.
Always last in Gym Class, I Never stood a chance in Debate. Immediately chosen for any Group task, That science Fair was a piece of Cake. Teachers love me, Oh how they praise me. Others not so much,
Everyone’s a rebel, we all want to change the system. We all shout until our throats are sore but the government won’t listen. School funding is paid by the local property taxes.

Why do we believe what we percieve to be true? What makes any of us different from any of you? I can't stand illiterate, inconsiderate, and illegitimate people. It makes their arguments impractical and inconcievible.
I am not dangerous I am DANGER! Listen to my words Because they are fulled with anger Always being judged Having rumors that aren't true You don't know me You don't walk in my shoes
You’re feeling insecure Don’t know what for You have everything That others dream for You are beautiful, strong, and pure

When I first met you I was determined to be your friend Everyday I'd come over Just to see you again. I'd do the sneakiest shit To see if you would smile It's the most fun I've had
Passive verbs will do just fine Unless of course, you wish to be kind Original characters are just great Unless of course, they arrive too late Use my names, or two, or three Unless of course, they belong to me

Hey you… Yeah, you. The girl with all the scars and stories to tell. The boy who sits alone in the corner, The child with a black eye from “falling down the stairs”, I’m here for you, Now and forever.

I watch you, With her I wish you were with me. I see you hug her, Hold her, I wish you’d hug or hold me. I see your eyes smile when you, See her,
You were suppose to be the first man in my life. You were suppose to tuck me in bed and wipe the tears that I shed. You were suppose to hold me the day I was born. Call me your princess your bundle of joy.

The buzz of the bass and the beat of the drum kept the crowd alive, Kids push and pull and scream and love and hate all at once, If I could be anywhere in the world, I would choose here in a heartbeat.
Balled up fists Match squinted eyes Contorted faces Spit ugly lies The Devils Power Causing fear Undeniable fury Pure and sheer
I've learned to like the problems. I've learned to love the pain. There is no hope of coping with it any other way. They say "Be glad with what you have, and you will be alright. Cherish every moment,
You talk a great deal about your struggles. You pin them up like badges of honor when really you are a coward hiding in the corner behind those "friends" you deem your pawns.
It'll just be a Tuesday.A Tuesday, normal to most.Just another day on the calendar. It'll be just another day of the week.

Is it impossible to see As you're tearing me apart Just how much that you've hurt me And my fragile little heart My happiness is now a lie And I fear the tears won't fall
